The model emphasizes local ownership of the decision-making process; commitment of local resources; participation of all people regardless of ethnicity, religion, or gender; inclusion of traditional, indigenous knowledge; and understanding that community development is a long-term process. Participants will be encouraged to build on their own strengths and capacities to promote sustainable social and economic development of their communities.
